- ‘When the field is turned back on, an initially parallel spin will end up antiparallel and vice versa.’
- ‘These latter structures can be left- or right-handed, they can be parallel or antiparallel, and they can have a differing number of residues per turn.’

- ‘Also no difference in the packing of the hydrophobic core between the parallel and antiparallel orientations was expected.’
